Thanks for purchasing Migration Magic! Please do not hesitate to contact us via our forums or support tickets if you are having trouble setting up your copy of Migration Magic. We will be happy to help you! WebDesires
First though please read through the instructions below which should help you get Migration Magic up and running with no hassle.
Unzip the full package onto your computer/server, we have pre-packed the whole system into a folder called "migration" - we recommend you use this as your sub folder on your server, but please feel free to change it if you need to, just take special attention to the config file instructions further down.
If the files were unzipped to your desktop, please now copy them onto your server, the files should all go into a sub-folder as mentioned above the default folder is "migration".
The config file will need renaming from "config_original.php" to "config.php" already has a default set of values for your convenience, however feel free to edit the settings in this file if you feel comfortable as some settings allow you to modify how Migration Magic works.
There are only 2 critical settings you SHOULD look at:
1) URL - This defines the default URL for Migration Magic - make sure you change the sub-folder to the folder you have placed Migration Magic into, you can even put Migration Magic onto a sub domain.
2) DB_FILE - This defines where the SQLite3 database file is and we highly recommend you rename this file to avoid easy access to the data from hackers, the file is located in the /db/ folder - later we will make sure htaccess is stopping you accessing this file for security.
In the /db/ folder you should have a .htaccess file, this file sets advanced rules in Apache, for our needs we use this to stop access to your database file, because if someone could download it they could access the data and possibly access your system. Please make sure the file exists and the below code is in the file (if it doesn't please create it).
Some zip software and/or systems will ignore .htaccess files when you unpack the files, this is because in UNIX/MACOS systems a file beginning with a dot is classed as "hidden" - if you cannot see a .htaccess file in the root of your Migration Magic installation then please create one with the following code in the file:
Your installation is now complete and you can load up Migration Magic from your browser, upon loading it will ask for a username and password, the default login is displayed above. I'm sure we don't need to tell you that you but please follow the following steps:
It's very important for security as there are bots around that will discover your installation and try and login with our default credentials.
